Whole Wheat Pasta with Spinach & Ricotta


I tried out this new pasta I found on Kraft Foods. I thought it was good, but I have to admit, I struggle with uncooked spinach. I know it sounds silly, but I might just "bake" it and turn it into something more like manacotti. Not one of my favorites, but you just have to keep trying, right? :)

Whole Wheat Pasta with Spinach & Ricotta

12 oz. pasta, uncooked
1 container (15 oz.) POLLY-O Original Ricotta Cheese
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/4 tsp. black pepper

COOK pasta as directed on package.

MEANWHILE, combine all remaining ingredients in large bowl.

DRAIN pasta. Add to cheese mixture; toss to coat.

Mmmmmmm . . . that looks good! I think I'll try it with some chicken and -- like you said -- bake the spinach a little. I'll let you know how it goes.
